Fake Radio IAWL

72 years later, Fake Radio is thrilled to recreate that entire 1947 CBS radio broadcast — commercials and all! — for live audiences. The 1946 film was so popular, that it was re-written for the radio and broadcast in 1947 for the Lux Radio Theatre. Jimmy Stewart reprised his role as George Bailey in the radio adaptation.

Featuring top talent from Portland and Los Angeles, Fake Radio re-enacts historic radio shows the old-fashioned way: dressed in period clothing and standing with scripts in hand in front of old microphones. Sound and music effects will make you feel like you’re watching a live radio show taping from the 1940s.
